This is a good movie!
19 September 2008 | by wtl471629See all my reviews

This movie was shown on TCM and I am fortunate to have got to watch it even though I did miss the first first few minutes. The movie is 77 min long and was not made at too much of an expense. This was common in the 1950s when these type of movies were made to be shown as part of double features that were popular on Saturdays at that time. Usually one of the movies of a double feature was a western so no doubt this was what this western movie was for. However, you make 100s of these type of movies you are bound to have a few gems and this one is one of them. It is not a great movie classic but it is a good movie that the entire family can enjoy. The movie involves stagecoach passengers having to hold up against an Indian attack in a ghost town and the stress brings out flaws in some of them. It is a good psychological western but it also has enough action and suspense to satisfy the typical western fan. It was a TCM premier the other day so it is very likely we will get some more chances to see it again sometime in the future. And that parting shot at the end is fantastic.
